My Anchor Holds
Words by W.C. Martin
Music by Daniel B. Towner

Hebrews 6:19
"Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and stedfast ..."

divider

          Thou' the angry surges roll
          On my tempest driven soul,
          I am peaceful, for I know,
          Wildly though the winds may blow,
          I've an anchor safe and sure,
          That can evermore endure.

            Chorus
            And it holds, my anchor holds:
            Blow your wildest, then, O gale,
            On my bark so small and frail;
            By His grace I shall not fail,
            For my anchor holds, my anchor holds.

          Mighty tides about me sweep,
          Perils lurk within the deep,
          Angry clouds o'er shade the sky,
          And the tempest rises high;
          Still I stand the tempest's shock,
          For my anchor grips the rock.

            Chorus
            And it holds, my anchor holds:
            Blow your wildest, then, O gale,
            On my bark so small and frail;
            By His grace I shall not fail,
            For my anchor holds, my anchor holds.

          I can feel the anchor fast
          As I meet each sudden blast,
          And the cable, though unseen,
          Bears the heavy strain between;
          Through the storm I safely ride,
          Till the turning of the tide.

            Chorus
            And it holds, my anchor holds:
            Blow your wildest, then, O gale,
            On my bark so small and frail;
            By His grace I shall not fail,
            For my anchor holds, my anchor holds.

          Troubles almost 'whelm the soul;
          Griefs like billows o'er me roll;
          Tempters seek to lure astray;
          Storms obscure the light of day:
          But in Christ I can be bold,
          I've an anchor that shall hold.

            Chorus
            And it holds, my anchor holds:
            Blow your wildest, then, O gale,
            On my bark so small and frail;
            By His grace I shall not fail,
            For my anchor holds, my anchor holds.
